Wasserman Schultz booed off stage at breakfast with her own FL delegation

Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s very bad week just became worse. First, in an unprecedented move, the the Democratic National Committee informed its chairwoman that she would not be assigned a speaking role at the convention, which starts today. Then, late yesterday, it was reported that Wasserman Schultz would be stepping down as head of the party.

Now, it looks as though she won’t even be given a chance to clean our her desk before she is run out town on a rail. Here is a scene from a breakfast meeting that took place this morning:

The audience giving Wasserman Schultz a Bronx cheer is comprised of members of her own Florida delegation!

Wasserman Schultz’s fall from grace has been a long time in coming. Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid was campaigning for her ouster well before some 20,000 DNC emails were leaked this past week, revealing staffers attempted to tilt the primary race in favor of Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders. But the emails were certainly the last straw.

The great irony in all of this is that Clinton is no longer the sure thing the DNC has been banking on throughout the primary season. Yesterday, protesters in Philadelphia, where the Democrats’ convention begins today, were out en masse chanting “Lock her up” and sporting t-shirts with the message “Hillary for Prison.”

But the protesters weren’t Republicans. They were Democrats who had supported Sanders and were irate over the shabby treatment accorded him by his own party.
